Obstructive Sleep Apnea and the Perioperative Period Webinar By MentorHealth
5/13/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: The webinar focuses on the patient safety issues in patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA undergoing surgery. We'll help you understand the risk factors for OSA and use appropriate screening tools can help identify undiagnosed cases.

Determining which patients and procedures can be safely managed in ambulatory settings vs. inpatient settings will be discussed. Anesthesia and intra-operative considerations will also be discussed. But most important will be the discussion on monitoring of OSA patients in the postoperative period. Monitoring OSA patients with pulse oximetry alone is insufficient and may give a false sense of security.

We use many case examples to illustrate the problems encountered in patients with OSA, including opioid-related events, hazards of supplemental oxygen, and others.

Why should you attend:

Are you aware of which patients have or might have OSA?

Are your patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA at risk of dying?

Have you already had adverse events in patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA?

Are you monitoring your at-risk patients correctly?

Does your staff fully understand the risks involved in patients with OSA?

Significant Changes Required by the Final Omnibus Rules
5/13/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: The focus of this presentation is to help covered entities and business associates understand what key changes they should have in place now, based upon the final omnibus rules. In this session, you will learn about significant changes to the HIPAA privacy and breach notification rules and some minor changes to the security rule.

Discussions will also include information from the comments to the rule which provided informative guidance to the changes, as well as clarifications for existing rules. Tips to comply with these changes will be reviewed.

Why should you Attend:Determining what changes organizations need to put in place to be in compliance with the final omnibus rules can be frustrating and take a lot of time. Many organizations are still struggling to figure out what they need to do to be in compliance with the original HIPAA rules. The compliance date of the final omnibus rules has come and gone (9/23/13; with a transition compliance date for previously compliant business associate agreements of 9/22/14). If your organization has not reviewed and updated its HIPAA compliance program, it is at risk of penalties, such as fines and corrective action plans. The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is increasingly penalizing organizations for they investigate incidents reported by patients and employees.

In addition, the OCR will likely resume its random audit program, which could also result in penalties. One common theme for OCR penalties provided is not having appropriately documented and implemented policies and procedures. Attend this webinar to learn what significant changes you should put in place to avoid being penalized. Important note for business associates: the final omnibus rules extended liability to you and requires you to comply with most of the HIPAA rules. Essentially, the OCR may audit, investigate, and provide you with penalties. In other words, your organizations are significantly impacted by the final omnibus rules.
